  1. We confirm. I couldn’t afford Panda at his full cost but 50% retention sweetens the deal. Even if he’s not what he was, he’s a massive upgrade (figuratively and literally) over what we currently have. Klumpp lasted one start in his return to Cleveland but will be missed. EDIT: We still confirm now that Jabs has put the players actual name You’re the best Jabs
  2. Indians confirm. We needed a big move to counter the Twins getting Giolito and this is that move. In all seriousness, I forgot bill Arthur existed and Cruz is a nice prospect, plus that Soze fella needs all the help he can get. love you Soze
  3. The following deal has been agreed upon: CLE sends RP Joan Guerrero (AAA), RP Peter Solomon (AA), RF Brayden Mack (A+), C Dillon Weeks (A+) & 1B Will Robertson (A+) PIT sends 3B Adam Hall (AAA), OF Kelsey Henderson (AAA), SP Salvador Montes (AAA), RP Kevin Dri (AAA) & SP Robin Addison (AAA/DL) A simple little prospect swap that Greg did literally all the heavy lifting for. My scout is a big fan of Hall and likes Dri and Addison enough, and Mack was the only prospect I really wanted to keep of this lot, but Greg drives a hard bargain. Plus Guerrero and his near-7 ERA can go suck an egg. Thanks again Greg for the easy deal.
  4. The following deal has been agreed upon CLE sends SP Antonio Castillo and 3B Javier Sosa (both INTL Complex. Will promote to R) PIT sends SP Anthony Klumpp and SP Bill Deely (both AAA) Greg came to me with this offer and I feel like either or both could contribute to my bullpen right now. If nothing else they provide me some depth if I get ravaged with injuries and both the guys I move are a long way away. Thanks Greg for the super easy deal
  5. The indian guardian spiders accept. Our team is struggling but despite that, we’re only a couple games back from that geriatric fuck. So we make a move. Maybe it’s not the right move, our bullpen has been much much worse than our rotation. But we needed to do something and I think the price is right. We will miss Acosta as my scout really likes him but he’s a few years away so he was expendable. Thanks Hodges. Always a pleasure
  6. Indians accept. We’re just trying shit here. I believe we are dead last in stolen bases and base running so using Hamilton as a pinch runner and backup IF might help things a little. It’s very low risk thanks to retention and my scout not being a fan of LaRoche Jr. Thanks Hodges. Always a pleasure
  7. Indians accept although I nearly declined because Eddie thought I was Australian, that bastard. Our minor leagues could use some depth and these are a couple of guys my scout likes the look of. In the grand scheme of things, $700k is nothing if one of these dudes works out. Thanks Ryan Buchholz. You're a champ
  8. Indians confirm Cumberland is blocked with Betts being my go-to and we fell Young could help our struggling bullpen if he gets to his full potential. Easy swap. Thanks Eddie, you're the best Buchholz brother for sure!
  9. We accept. Middle IF depth is weak for us so always nice to add a little depth for cheap. Captain status always nice too. Cheers Eddie
  10. Indians accept. Walker is an upgrade in our IF and the cost was right. Thanks Rhett. Always a pleasure
  11. The Indians accept. Middle IF is the shallowest position in our entire organisation and because some bastard who I won’t name but his name rhymes with Babs bid me up on a certain FA, I had to try the trade market. Eierman is someone my scout likes quite a bit but I’m not sure if he is quite ready so Kozma is a solid insurance piece. Always a pleasure Heinz
  12. The following deal has been agreed upon CLE sends 1B Keon Barnum, RP Ken Gary & 2B Jonathan India (AA) OAK sends RP Hudson Boyd, CF Aaron Phillips & 2B Jazz Chisholm (AAA) This was a hard trade for me to do and might seem to be a bit of a backwards move considering we're trying to win now. That is how highly my scout thinks of Chisholm, and he plays a position harder to fill with potential stars. I like India a lot and have rebuffed offers for him in the past but I think Chisholm is better than him in pretty much every way and he is closer to the bigs. Barnum just had a great season for us but I feel 1B is easy to replace (hopefully anyway). Phillips can be a great 4th OF for us or he is young enough to develop a little more in AAA if need be. Thanks Scott. Best of luck in your hellhole division
  13. We do this deal for a couple reasons. Getting out of Pineda's deal may seem the obvious thing but we potentially take on more money if he chooses to opt out with Joseph. However Joseph will be our DH from next season as we won't be able to resign Roddy Espinoza.
  14. Indians agree. This will be Tomlins third stint with us and hopefully he can help out the struggling backend of our rotation. Thanks Sam and best of luck
  15. Indians accept. As above. I’ll miss Lil’Jordan but it’s great to have Espy back
  16. Indians agree We need bullpen help and Bass, despite a high BABIP, has still put up respectable numbers this season. We move out Alex Collins, who I still think could be the best player in this trade if he figures things out but I can't afford for him to keep costing me games. M.D. is decent but as Brenton described, very much a flyer. Thanks Brenton. Always a pleasure. (I feel like we must hold the record for most completed trades between two teams by now)
  17. The following deal has been agreed upon: CLE sends SS Micah Mason (R) CIN sends RP Yosuke Ichikawa Our bullpen ranks 14th or 15th in the AL and that's just not gonna cut it. While we think Ichikawa's numbers are due to rise a little, we still view him as an upgrade and a solid vet for our young, inexperienced bullpen. Mason is a rookie we like quite a bit and has serious defensive potential, but he is far away. Thanks Scott and all the best on the rebuild!
  18. Indians accept I know it's early in the season but we're concerned with how the middle of the rotation has performed so far this season so we decided to make a move now to upgrade considering there are few pieces available. Pill is a definite upgrade for sure. It's true, this wasn't even a thought yesterday and now it's done. Proud of you Brentoni. Hope these prospects work out for you
  19. The following deal has been agreed upon The Indians send 1B Nick Delmonico The White Sox send 3B Nick Brandon (A+) With the moves we've made, Delmonico found himself as the odd man out unfortunately, as we do like him. With this, we clear a much needed roster space and get a prospect who, despite his low intelligence and work ethic, is liked enough by my scout where I am somewhat intrigued. Thanks for the painless deal Hodges. Always a pleasure
  20. Indians accept. we overlooked the fact we had no lefties in our pen. Guerrero seemed to be one of the better affordable pieces and he will also give me a sweet, sweet popularity boost for the fans which means more moneys. love you Heinz
  21. We accept. Espinoza has proven that he can put up numbers in pitchers parks previously and can hit vs LHP, something Barnum cannot do. He also doesn't give us a long term commitment and fills a hole nicely until Gregorio Lopez is ML-ready. Thanks to Heinz for doing the heavy lifting on this one.
  22. Indians accept. its funny the difference in scouts. My scout feels like I got the best player here in Paschini and my scout also really likes White. But we did give up a couple guys I liked in Lemons and Reed. Either way, this is a crapshoot anyway. Thanks Matt. Prospect swaps are always fun
  23. We accept this deal with the devil. We needed an excellent defensive SS who can get on base and Suzuki fits that role perfectly. He is no stud defensively, but he can get on the bag at a decent clip. We also think Betances could be a bounceback candidate but with the 100% retention, there is no real risk involved on my end. The prospects are good but blocked by better options and Torres was a fave of mine but oft-injured and can't play SS I begrudgingly thank Rocky for the deal
  24. The following trade has (finally) been agreed upon CLE sends RP James Serrano (AAA), RP Donald Austin (AAA), 3B Antonio Morales (AAA), SS Bill Weaver (A Lake County), RF Joe Gray Jr (A Lake County) & SP Tahnaj Thomas (A-) ATL sends RF Nick Williams & 1B Keon Barnum We have been working on this trade with Brenton for weeks now. We do give up some guys we really like, specifically Serrano and Austin but we get an OF who can hit LF and RF in Williams and a potential RBI guy in Barnum, two areas we needed to address. Brenton, even though sometimes trading with you is a nightmare, it always ends up as a pleasure. All the best mate
